Congratulations to the The Independent UK for writing my favorite lede of 2016: “Harry Potter author moves to dismiss suggestions dead gorilla is among the forms of advanced magic that can be used to shield people from Dementors.” Harambe, the famed dead gorilla from the Cincinnati Zoo turned pop culture meme icon, still lives on in the hearts and exposed p*****s of his devoted fans.
People are weird. Sometimes, people bring their weirdness into public. And sometimes, you’re forced to sit next to that weirdness on a redeye flight because some weirdo bought a full-price airline ticket for a doll.

Gigantic bouncy castle? Gigantic bouncy castle.

See you next week!
